Keep the Tubes
When I travel, I put my cigars in metal tubes from cigars I’ve smoked and leftovers I’ve collected from cigar stores. I’ve collected about a dozen of the larger tubes (7×54), they can hold most of what I smoke. Metal tubes keep the cigars fresh and protected from breakage – and they’re cheap. Want to keep them from sliding around in the tube? Add a small wad of cotton. Perfect.
